Wilfork: We have our thinking caps on for Bills

FOXBORO -- It's unlike any NFL team to reveal their or their opponent's secrets, heading into a game. But on Thursday, Patriots veteran Vince Wilfork gave at least some description of what they'll be expecting from the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.

"They keep you off-balance," said Wilfork. "This offense keeps you off-balance. They do it all. I don't care who they have back there at running back. I don't care what running plays -- as soon as they go to the sideline and adjust, they come up with something different.

"They give you so many different looks," he added. "We have to have our thinking caps on, at all times with this team. Like I said, they've been very successful over the years, especially against us. Giving us different things, not letting us settle into a game. They just keep it moving on us. So, we have to understand what they're trying to do, and just have to prepare well."

Giardi: Garoppolo 'still in pain,' does not have full mobility in shoulder

The Patriots had both Jimmy Garoppolo and Jacoby Brissett on the field for Tuesday's practice.

While many are hopeful that Garoppolo will be ready to go on Sunday, it’s definitely not a given at this point.

According to CSN’s Mike Giardi, Garoppolo is “still in pain and does not yet have full mobility in his throwing shoulder”

Tom E. Curran had better news about Jacoby Brissett’s thumb. The rookie quarterback was in the Patriots locker room locker room Tuesday morning without splint, tape or cast on his thumb. 

When he asked Brissett if he's feeling "tip-top," he answered, "Oh yeah."
